Colour is proper, could be darker, but as long as the New Master Distiller takes over the production, we cannot expect much.

Louche is gradual and slow and very attractive.

Aroma attacks with a persistent, harsh mint, it is not that pleasant as it should be-maybe the mint of dubious quality or even of wrong species, yet the aroma is saved with a discrete wormwood

Flavour is organized as the mixture of spiciness and crispiness, what is relatively palatable. The finish is anisy, with wormwood in the middle. The main flaw is that absinthe is unbalanced despite the rumours of its long "aging" or whatever.

There are things that catch our attention positively, yet there is no artistry or skill in it. And ad hoc.

Better than Vieux Pontarlier or Roquette, still needs some work in the obvious departments. Diminishing of the mint would be required, it gets sticky on the tongue for too long.
